Profeta Painting and WCI Realty Host A Backpack Drive Every Year
Profeta Painting, a local business with a strong commitment to giving back, has teamed up with WCI Realty to make a significant impact on the lives of children and families in need. For the past 5 years, this initiative has focused on supporting the Hillside Family of Agencies, a beacon of hope for those facing challenges in the Rochester area.
Hillside Family of Agencies: A Pillar of Support
Hillside Family of Agencies, with a rich history dating back to 1837, is one of the oldest non-profit human services organizations in Western and Central New York. Today Hillside provides a comprehensive range of services, including community-based services, education, behavioral health, and residential treatment. They focus on partnering with youth and families who have experienced trauma.
The organization’s mission is to help youth and families overcome challenges to heal and thrive within their communities. Hillside is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment, leveraging diversity to build a strong, equitable community, and employing evidence-based practices to achieve the best possible outcomes. With locations across central and western New York and Maryland, Hillside serves nearly 10,000 youth, adults, and families each year. This embodies its philosophy of being family-driven, youth-guided, trauma-informed, and culturally competent. Profeta Painting is proud to support organizations like Hillside, who is devoted to improving the lives of those in need.
Backpack Drive: Lending a Hand to Hillside’s Children
Each Summer, recognizing the need for community involvement and support, Profeta Painting and WCI Realty have embarked on an annual initiative to collect backpacks for the children at Hillside. This backpack drive is more than just a donation; it’s a symbol of hope and support for the children who live and reside at Hillside. It provides them with essential tools for their education and daily lives. Not to mention cool and fun designs, to make the “back-to-school” experience enjoyable for them.
This initiative reflects the understanding that a thriving community is built on a foundation of collective efforts. By providing these backpacks, Profeta Painting and WCI Realty are not only helping to meet a practical need but also showing these children that their community cares and supports them in their journey towards success and well-being.
WCI Realty: A Partner in Giving
WCI Realty plays a crucial role in this collaborative effort, demonstrating the power of businesses coming together for a common cause. Their involvement in the backpack drive underscores their commitment to the community and the importance of supporting initiatives that make a direct impact on the lives of children and families in need.
A Yearly Tradition
The partnership between Profeta Painting, WCI Realty, and the Hillside Family of Agencies is a testament to what can be achieved when businesses and organizations come together with a shared vision of supporting and uplifting their community. It serves as an inspiring example for others to follow, highlighting the importance of giving back and working collectively to create a brighter future for all.
As we continue to support Hillside and its mission, let us remember that every act of kindness, no matter how small, contributes to the larger goal of building a community where everyone can heal, thrive, and succeed. Together, we can make a difference in the lives of those who need it most!
